“Let me deal with her, I’ll think of a way to help you. What you should do right now isn’t accepting new jobs, preparing for concerts, or even traveling around to promote the release of your new movie… Instead, you should get a good night’s sleep. Look at you, your eyebags are so obvious that you’ve got your own smokey-eye look.”
At the mention of the smokey-eye look, Ni Yang couldn’t help but laugh…
As soon as Huo Mian mentioned ‘smokey-eye makeup’, he would think back at her exaggerated look during the grand opening of GK Film and Television a while ago.
Su Yu had already mocked her about it several times, and it has clearly already become Huo Mian’s sore spot.
However, despite how humiliated she was, she still brought it up, just to make Ni Yang laugh…
‘Thanks, Huo Mian.”
“Okay… since you’ve always treated me like a real sister, of course I have to take care of my little brother! On behalf of the company, I will give you tomorrow off. You can wake up later tomorrow, have a meal with Sister Yingzi, and then walk around by the beach or something. Just make sure to relax for a bit… and come back for work the day after tomorrow, any questions?”
“I’ll try my best,” Ni Yang slowly spoke.
“Okay, then I’ll be going now, send me a message if you need anything later.”
Huo Mian sighed in relief and headed out when she saw that Ni Yang had calmed down quite a bit…
“Young Madam, how is he?” asked Yingzi worriedly.
“I have to go meet… that mother of Ni Yang. She has quite an influence over him.”
“It was because of his mom?” Yingzi was a bit taken back.
“Yes, it’s a long story. I have to go first, please watch over him, and call me anytime if anything happens.”
“Okay, thanks for all your help, Young Madam.”
After a few interactions, and after she saw how Huo Mian dealt with things, Yingzi had completely fallen in admiration for this young madam.
She always knew how to solve urgent issues…
Huo Mian didn’t head back home after she left the Phoenix Mansions, but instead, she called Assistant Yang.
“That woman I told you to investigate before, do you know where her food stall is?”
“Uhm… wait for a bit, Young Madam, let me look into it. Oh, it’s that street by the Third Ring Road, next to Madam Jing Square.”
“Okay, I got it.”
Huo Mian then drove straight to Third Ring Road, the busiest part of town. There were cars and people everywhere… and even more red lights…
After Huo Mian finally found a place to park her car, she got off and walked towards the pedestrian walkway.
There were countless food carts all over the pedestrian streets…
This was a place tourists would often visit, because one could eat everything that C City had to offer on this single street.
After Huo Mian walked around for about ten minutes or so, she finally saw a stall that sold hand-pulled pancakes and grilled sausage…
The banner that hung above read, ‘Juan’s Grilled Sausage’.
“Hi, are you Ms. Xie Juan?”
“Who are you?”
The woman was very skinny and tan and looked to be about forty or so years old.
She wore a blue work uniform with a black apron.
She skillfully grilled the sausages while she flipped pancakes…
“It doesn’t matter who I am, I have something important to talk to you about.”
“I don’t even know you, why do I have to talk to you?” The woman was clearly very impolite.
Huo Mian didn’t say anything, as she took out a thousand yuan from her wallet and placed it in Xie Juan’s cash basket.
“This money should be enough for your entire day’s work, let’s go.”
Huo Mian didn’t even wait until Xie Juan finished and walked towards the side as soon as she finished speaking…
As expected, Xie Juan immediately packed up her stall, closing up for the day…
She pushed the cart as she followed behind Huo Mian…
“Park your cart there, we’ll sit inside.”
There just happened to be a Starbucks on the pedestrian street, so Huo Mian walked in…
After Xie Juan parked the cart, she followed behind Huo Mian.
“Waitress, two cups of blue mountain coffee please.”
“Who are you?” Xie Juan looked at Huo Mian cautiously.
Huo Mian didn’t say anything as she checked Xie Juan out from head to toe. It was hard for her to believe that this middle-aged woman, who looked completely ordinary, was the main culprit who repeatedly pushed her own son, Ni Yang, into despair.
